Oleanna tells the story of the volatile relationship between Carol, a student struggling to pass a course she desperately needs to graduate, and John, her professor, up for a tenure promotion, whose life is suddenly turned upside down when Carol accuses him of sexual misconduct. The truth becomes mired in doubt and individual interpretation as the play twists and turns down a path of turmoil leading to its intense and thought provoking conclusion. Written by acclaimed Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet, Oleanna raises serious debate as to the purpose and future of academia in America, but also to how we should interpret our own actions towards others and whether the faith we bestow in our perception of another’s behavior can be trusted.
